    Skyfire BB Support!

    Advertisement



    I signed up as a beta tester hoping for this day! I just received an email from Skyfire that they are currently investigating BB support!
    Here is the email:
    Thank you for your interest in Skyfire. Please read on to find out more about our current and future plans for Skyfire!

    THE ROAD SO FAR:
    Since the launch of the Skyfire beta, we have been moving full speed ahead, receiving a strong response and positive feedback from users and the mobile browser community. Beta 1 & 2 is complete with the release of Skyfire 0.6 to Windows Mobile 5 and 6 phones in the U.S.

    • We support both touch-screen and non-touch screen Windows Mobile 5 or 6 devices with U.S. based phone numbers.
    • We also support Symbian Series 60 3rd edition phones, specifically:
    Nokia E61i, E61, N73, N75, N76, & N95

    THE ROAD AHEAD:
    We are in the process of releasing the Symbian Beta in the U.S. Initially we will support the Symbian Series 60 3rd edition platform on Nokia N-Series and E-Series phones. Lastly, we have plans to introduce our product internationally. It’s just going to take us a little more time to get there.

    • We are currently investigating SUPPORT for BLACKBERRY and UIQ, but it's not on our immediate roadmap.

    • We would certainly investigate putting Skyfire on the iPhone or the Samsung Instinct when the timing is right.

    • Palm OS phones aren't supported, but Windows Mobile phones offered by Palm, like certain Treo models, are fully supported.

    • Phones with VGA displays (640 x 480 resolution), will not work properly with the current beta. We support a maximum resolution of 320 x 320 pixels.

    For additional updates, please visit us at www.skyfire.com and check out our blog and/or our FAQ.
    Thanks,

    Skyfire Support

    Skyfire is hiring!

    That would be sweet if they would make us a priority.

    I've followed this for a while and I get the impression that BB's are way down on their priority. Of couse it never hurts to shoot an email to them. I've sent several. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    We need to show them that the market is here, go to their forums, send emails, anyway for them to find out.

    I agree with what jblackfish said. It is on the road map but way down the road. I think it is a great idea to contact skyfire and show what a huge market this would be. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Translation: we're looking for an alternative to rewriting our client application completely from C++ to Java, since it would be way too expensive to justify the cost recoup to do that and to maintain two completely different language codebases.
